Supreme Court Gives Judgement On Case Seeking To Sack Governor Fubara



The Supreme Court has given its verdict in a suit seeking the sack of Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State.
In the ruling, the apex court in Nigeria described Fubara as the authentic winner of the March 18 governorship election in the state.
In a unanimous judgment on Thursday, January 25, Justice Ibrahim Saulawa-led five-man panel of the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal filed by the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Tonye Cole over lack of merit.
In the lead judgment, Justice Saulawa held that Cole and the APC failed to prove their case with sufficient evidence.
He resolved all of the four issues identified for determination in the appeal against the appellants and dismissed the appeal.
Cole had approached the court to challenge the governor’s victory in the state’s Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) election.
Recall that INEC had declared Fubara of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of the election, after scoring 302,614 votes as against Cole’s 95,274 votes.
